Both optimists and pessimists contribute to our society. The optimist invents the airplane and the pessimist the parachute. ~Gil Stern
When nothing in life seems to be going right, hard to see the silver lining among all those clouds. If I look back through my life, I couldn't judge myself as optimist or pessimist person. I could be someone with high optimistic spirit – the thought "nothing in this world can't stop me" graven in me. But, I also could be pessimistic.
Based on optimistic test, they categorized me as cynicism, someone who neither naive nor jaded. I strongly agree with that, and honestly admit that I am cynic person. I am cynic whose realistic, with some optimism in her soul.
